hi guys

im really confussed..

so i need to pay my 800 buck deposit for housing, but it gives you the option to pay with fin aid?.. but how do i know if my fin aid would cover housing? i checked my financial aid stuff and it was the most confusing thing ever.. im not sure if it covers housing or anything.. when i clicked view my fin aid stuff, all it gave me was loans and stuff.. but when i clicked view fin aid summary, it said something about everything being covered.. im so lost... so should i pay 800 bucks? or should i check financial aid on the paper and mail it in?

and do we get the 800 bucks back later?..

    First, you have to decide whether or not to accept the financial aid awards listed.

    All it's asking is if you want a portion of the proceeds from your financial aid to cover the housing deposit. If yes, they'll deduct $800 from your award.
